Hi guys,

 

The other day I saw a car for sale on the Subaru car parts Aust. facebook site and I had to check it out.  

It was an utter bucket of shit..... so I promptly bought it.

 

Just another project to keep me entertained, it's a White MY02 Gen3 B4.

 

Say hello to Hobokong.....

She's a bit of a mess. It had a blue B4 bonnet as well but that's now on my RX2.5 Bluekong.

 

The only way i can describe it is to call it a Hobo.  It's been beaten & broken & tortured & cut up & molested beyond imagination.

It needs a shit tonne of work done to it.

 

The story goes....

 

I first met Hobokong a few years back when a Member here, Mbooma bought it as his second B4, for quite a cheap price. He intended to do the quick fix and flip to fund his other B4's needs. He brought it to me when it was discovered it major running issues.

 

I had a look around and promptly advised him to get rid of it as quickly as he could..... and to get it the fork off my driveway before the concrete caught what this car had. 

 

So Mbooma sold the car on.

 

The car was then sold from backyard mechanic to backyard mechanic, all of which saw the potential of the car, but didn't have the parts or the means to fix the issues. So they fixed what they could then flogged it off to the next poor bastard. Brake discs & pads, new springs, new tyres, panels etc etc...

 

 

It is the single worst example of a B4 I have ever laid my eyes on.  It disgusts me.

 

Everything is so so wrong & it's damn amazing I made it home on the trip from Penrith to the Central coast when I picked it up.

 

This particular car IS the one that gave the B4's it's bad name!

 

 

 

But the thing is..... it's all repairable  :D

 

 

So let's take a look at some of the work the previous owners did.

This would have to be the best battery tie down I've seen....

Some of the damage that needs attention and....

Is that seriously a wood screw?

Blergh!

Tape, forking lol.

 

 

DSC_0199_zpsu1pptlsg.jpg

 

 

 

Cable ties at work.

 

 

 

DSC_0202_zpszcdkd2au.jpg

 

 

 

And for the TT people, this next piece of improvisation is simply amazing!

 

The connecting rods of the ECV are held together by.... get this...

a piece of silicone hose, cable ties and what looks to be the metal sleeve off a concrete bolt.

 

 

DSC_0211_zpsbigm8ik5.jpg

 

 

 

The boost gauge is plumbed into the line to the brake booster. It leaks inside the car near the gauge itself, sounds hecktic.

Popping it's head out, behind and to the right of this creative plumbing, is a Turbosmart boost tee.

There's also another one on the secondary DPS line....WTF? 

AND THAT SAME LINE IS PLUMBED FROM THE DPS TO THE IACV !!!!!   So no boost or vac whatsoever (TT jibba jabba)

 

 

DSC_0192_zpsd4zxlsqt.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

So there's lots of work to do and it's perfect timing that I'm wrecking my old Whitekong. I have all I need to get this thing back into it's former glory.

I know the engine has approx 150K not 280k as advertised :D

The gearbox is mint & it has a really good set of custom dump pipes and a good 3" exhaust.

The interior will be ok once it's cleaned & all the missing bits are replaced.

So much of Whitekong's remains will be donated to Hobokong,  this will be quite a Cinderella type story. 

 

Underneath all the abuse.... there is a beautiful B4 hiding. Trust me on that!

Wow. That is the some of the dodgiest shite I have seen done to a TT. 

It's in safe hands now.


How does it actually run? Does it cause a fold in time-space continuum every time it tries to changeover?

It runs bad!  It's completely forked Jimbo, I have to return it all to stock. 

 

It only boosts when the car is cold.  All secondary.  Everything will be replaced.

From memory it also had the diagnose connectors plugged in so probably like absolute shite haha

Looking forward to this kong. My mate the other day asked me while all subaru people buy shitboxes and fix them up. Its true when you think about it hahahaha

This car was destined to the scrap yard.  I'm certain of that.

I can't get my head around it.  Just gobsmacked.

 

Can't wait to see what other dodgy shit I find.

some people shouldn't be allowed to open their bonnet. How hard is it to find a metric coupling nut, FFS?

 

on the flip side, I guess it allows quick devaluation for others to pick up a bargain!

 

I bet there's a bag of fun wiring behind the console!

Glad you have the skills and knowledge to save a car such as this...
If I ever saw something like this, I would run away!

I have to swap the dash, it has a tear.  That will be fun.

 

I didn't get much done today because of the weather.  

Swapped boot lids, exchanged  the panel under the left rear brake light, added a mint tail garnish & tail lights.  I installed a boot light as it had none.

I ripped all the boot linings out and they're going in the bin. Number plate frame added also.

 

And the bit I've been waiting for, it never felt right wearing this badge on Whitekong 1.  She was a B4ritage.

Been saving this little fella for the right occasion...

Thanks, but I have so many parts lying around, literally 4 grilles to choose from.

I'm going to try to do this without spending much more cash & using what I've got, I have lot's of goodies to chuck into the restoration.

There are no words.


I like to think of it as borrowing someone's car and driving it better than them.

Looks like a hunka..... not for long 

Glad you found something to continue the TT knowledge and expertise on mate as many have said it wouldn't be right for you to go without one. 

Im sure this will turn out much the same as the old one, hell it'll even be a legal car not swapped  :sarcastic:

Ha ha ha, all of those finds are such poor form. I'm surprised it has worked for as long as it has. Good luck with it man!


Wanting to buy/looking for: single genuine STi rim, genuine STi front lip, Corazon or Zero/Sports grille and another OEM grille

Can you hook a brother up? Please contact me now. I have cash ready.
